My forte is audio.. Car/Home/Boat. You name it, I will help you even if it is just a link to more assistance.
If you want to interface new gear to your factory radio I can do us both a favor and tell you to go to crutchfield.com or call them at 1.800.555.7088. They really are top notch at doing that for people with great support. I will re-direct most questions of that nature to them. The rest of it... I am eager to help you with.
I am also not a 'Master Installation Technician' that will tell you I cannot assist you with cars not made in the USA.
Talk to me about any audio upgrades including 'bang for the buck'.
Specialties include: Overall Acoustics, Gain structure/settings and Enclosure design, system design/consultation, when/where to get which upgrades as well as other pertinent info for the mobile audio enthusiast and much more.
I also am NOT interested in buying your used gear so do not waste our time asking me. ♫
My specialty as it is offered here, is Mobile and Home Audio Consultation.

1) Not near enough qualified people volunteer, here. 2) I get about 350 questions a year. 3) Gold plated connectors' best attribute is corrosion resistance. Arguably, you will never hear the difference (but it is measurable).
If you can't crank it..yank it!
